Valandre Sleeping Bag Review 2

Opinion from Songaah: A very versatile sleeping bag, with its 2 flanges (a very closed, just enough room to move the neck, another lighter), allows it to adapt according to the temperature (which is really good on a trip). Trimmed goose down (I know it’s not super green…), it’s really super comfortable, the partitioning is really effective, the feathers stay in place. Only downside, the outside fabric deserved to be waterproof or at least water repellent. In cold and wet season, condensation wet tissue, and it is sometimes quite long and boring to dry.

We spent the nights with good negatives (-7 / 8 °), and the bag of his role (when it’s really cold, I throw myself a little fleece jacket and Socks). The hood is really well enveloping, Piazza at the level of the shoulders and the feet is well proportioned (wide enough to move, but quite narrow to limit the heat loss).

Overall, I am very happy with my choice, it’s comfortable, well thought out, very well done. Not much to complain about if the price (€400) which can be a barrier. Without hesitation, I would do the same choice.

Shocking Blue:

Shoulder width: 75 cm

Volume: 9.5 l

Weight: 1380 g

Temperature: – 5 ° /-12 °

Inner fabric: polyester Ripstop Asali Kasei WR.

Outer fabric: polyamide Ripstop Asahi Kasei Impact WR.

Packing: European grey goose down ‘manually’, collected 95%, PS > 800,780 g.

Construction: partitioning in individual compartments in walls inclined (no), 34 individual compartments pre-cut arches, anatomical and differential cut, 91 parts are assembled to perfectly match the shape of the body.

Valandre Sleeping Bag Review 3

My opinion: Here, we are on a bag for big chilly! Here, no removable collar, but a lot of fluff, as saying that the trip is largely sufficient. For the positives, we are close enough to Bloody Mary (well finished, very pleasant to sleep (it is top wig!), good interior space…). On the negatives, we have the flange, which despite its high efficiency, is a bit complicated. The zip system is not very perfect, and little sometimes disturb (you can feel in the neck). And if the rate of the Bloody Mary was already substantial, then it really starts to Sting: € 540, ouche!
